Background of GM-CSF

Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is also symbolized CSF2. Human GM-CSF is a glycoprotein that is essential for the in vitro proliferation and differentiation of precursor cells into mature granulocytes and macrophages. The human cDNA clones contain a single open-reading frame encoding a protein of 144 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 16,293 daltons and show 69% nucleotide homology and 54% amino acid homology to mouse GM-CSF. The gene for human GM-CSF appears to exist as a single-copy gene. Human GM-CSF is a 22,000-dalton glycoprotein that stimulates the growth of myeloid progenitor cells and acts directly on mature neutrophils. The GM-CSF gene is localized by somatic cell hybrid analysis and in situ hybridization to human chromosome region 5q21-5q32, which is involved in interstitial deletions in the 5q- syndrome and acute myelogenous leukemia. A complementary DNA for the T lymphocyte-derived lymphokine, GM-CSF has been cloned, and recombinant GM-CSF protein has been expressed in yeast and purified to homogeneity. This purified human recombinant GM-CSF stimulates peripheral blood monocytes in vitro to become cytotoxic for the malignant melanoma cell line A375.

Intra Assay Consistency & Inter Assay Consistency

We measured random samples of Human GM-CSF ELISA Kit PicoKine® within the same batch/lot to ensure the consistency of the kits' performances. ELISA intra assay consistency is measured using wells from the same plate/assay kit. ELISA inter assay consistency is measured using wells from different plates from the same batch production/lot.

6 Customer Q&As for Human GM-CSF ELISA Kit PicoKine®

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated GM-CSF antibodies are mixed with the substrate, will that convert the substrate into the enzymatic reaction product? Or the enzyme function is only activated when the antibody is attached with the GM-CSF antigen?

Y. Rodriguez

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-09-03

Answer

A: The enzyme is always active. Avoid contaminating the substrate with enzyme prior to the incubation otherwise it compromises the assay with false positive signal.

Question

Q: is it okay to use heparin plasma as samples in Human GM-CSF Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0364)?

L. Parker

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-20

Answer

A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can sequester metal ions from the functional domain of GM-CSF causing degradation of its protein structure. GM-CSF may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes required for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the GM-CSF ELISA, treating samples with various anticoagulants and decided that heparin, EDTA or citrate can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for measurement GM-CSF using the EK0364 Human GM-CSF Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-02-10

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may affect the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample right after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to prevent protein degradation.

Question

Q: how many samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-05-02

Answer

A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may vary slightly by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Question

Q: Can GM-CSF ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-07-23

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not valid for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been evaluated by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please see the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: what is the protocol regarding preparation of cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-03-11

Answer

A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are present in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer may affect immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.
